FROM OUR REPORTER

SHILLONG, June 23: The ibility of the Executive Committee of the KHADC under the leadership of Chief Executive Member (CEM) Pynshngain N Syiem to release several questions raised by members of the house during the budget session has prompted the Chairman of KHADC to state that the present EC performance is poor.

The KHADC Chairman Manstudy Nongrem after the conclusion of the question hour later totaled the number of questions released by the EC which came to only 58 per cent.

The Chairman also urged the EC to release all the questions put forward by members of the house.

Speaking to reporters after the conclusion of the summer budget session, HSPDP MDC, Sohryngkham constituency, Pyniaid Sing Syiem said, “The ibility of the EC to release the questions clearly shows that the EC are scared of the members of the opposition.”

MDCs from the opposition had put forward 28 questions during the summer session, however out of the 28 only 14 questions were replied by the EC. MDC from Mylliem constituency Teilinia Thangkhiew had raised 19 questions to which only 13 were replied and Pyniaid Sing Syiem had raised 9 questions in which only one was replied by the EC. He observed that the budget session of KHADC clearly indicates that most of the EM have no responsibility towards their respective departments since many of the issues raised by them had to be answered by the CEM.
